We were in Taiwan for a grand total of 36 hours, no time to check email or blog. Arrived in Hong Kong yesterday and hit the hotel after a couple of school visits. Will be off for a tour of Lantau Island this afternoon - we actually have one entire day off (no travel, even!). Will post more on Hong Kong before we leave, in the meantime here are some pics from Taiwan, starting with the lunch we were served at the National Experimental School. Pizza and pop on the roof, oh boy!
Traffic is not as crazy in Taipei, but the visual environment is much more chaotic - miles and miles of high rises and signs everywhere you look.
The view from my hotel room.
The TV knows my name!
Everyone wants a picture of the waitress opening the beer bottles.
The fountain outside our hotel room was very beautiful, this picture doesn't really do it justice. The lights changed colors every few seconds.
